Alt-text: "Shara doesn't REALLY know the terrain ... she just heard somewhere that there'd be a shortcut through some caves ..."

Magic in Yra (the world where this takes place) is not as feared or dangerous as it is, for example, in the world of Dragon Age. It's a natural part of nearly everything in the world, although the people of Yra are still not very far in understanding how anything works.

Nonetheless, there are people who have some natural affinity for it, and some who don't. Those who have, and train it, are able to do things the others will never be able to do ... and since there's still a lot to discover about magic, and it's a very powerful force, no one really knows what you can do with magic, if you just try hard enough. This leads to a nice mixture of envy and nervosity in a lot of magic inepts, because you can't REALLY know if that guy can just make some fire with his mind or if he can also.... control your thoughts or something ...

In addition to that, Shara comes from somewhere where there's a whole political .. stuff happening between the Mage's Guild and other parties, but that's for later ...

Updated on 2017-09-30: I rearranged the text in the middle panel significantly in this one ... it was basically unreadable the way it was before.

Updated on 2023-09-08: Today I probably wouldn't have Shara say "slut" in panel 3 anymore. Not that she cares about offending anyone, it just doesn't fit. "bitch" on the other hand, would've fit nicely ...
